Nationals look to ignite offense against Brewers

Right-hander Aaron Sanchez will get the nod as the Washington Nationals look to avoid a three-game sweep Sunday against the Brewers in Milwaukee, but he’ll need his teammates to generate some offense to have any chance at success.

The Brewers won the second game of the weekend series 5-1 on Saturday after winning the opener 7-0. Milwaukee is 18-6 in the last 24 games against the Nationals.

Brandon Woodruff held the Nats to one run on five hits in six innings Saturday night, striking out six with no walks. Andrew McCutchen and hot-hitting Luis Urias homered for Milwaukee, which moved to a season-high 12 games above .500 at 26-14.

The only run for the Nationals in the series came on Lane Thomas’ solo homer in the third inning Saturday. Washington, which stranded eight runners Saturday, has drawn just two walks in the series.
